Mine: A tool against data miners

  • Date Completed: July 2013

Mine is a service that allows you to see yourself like data-miners see you.
Mine was designed to allow users to see what data miners see about them online, and to let them control the data they expose to the world.

By exposing users to the information available about them, Mine is designed to be an awareness service, informing users that their social information may affect their credit rating, insurance policy and many other unexpected real-world services.

Mine is a service created for Microsoft Design Expo 2013.
